Welcome to one of the most interesting, vibrant and diverse pockets of the District of Columbia. D.C.’s Eckington neighborhood (bordered by Florida Avenue to the south, North Capitol Street to the west and the Metropolitan Branch Trail to the east) sits atop one of the highest points of the city. Composed mostly of charming Wardman-style early 20th-century row homes, Eckington is home to the McKinley Technology High School and the Harry Thomas Recreation Center. Featured in Netflix’s “House of Cards” opening credits, Eckington is a sanctuary less than a mile from the exciting nightlife of the U Street corridor, the hip restaurant scene in Bloomingdale and the culinary delights of NoMa’s Union Market. The neighborhood is accessible by the Rhode Island Avenue and NoMa Metro stops and the North Capitol bus lines. Be sure to check out this vibrant neighborhood in the heart of D.C. where property values have been on the rise.
